Indian auto giant Tata has been upping its game in the passenger vehicle segment ever since it has come up with it’s new- age “Impact” design philosophy. The boosting sales number have been a perfect example of the same and the most recent product from Tata’s stable- Nexon has also been doing well.
NCAP is a certification body that is considered as the global benchmark for evaluating the car safety of newly introduced models. The recently concluded safety tests by Global NCAP indicate that the Nexon achieved the highest adult safety score (13.56/17.00) amongst all the models tested across the Indian market which is a commendable feat!
Mayank Pareek, President – PVBU, Tata Motors, said, “The Global NCAP results are a reflection of our commitment towards bringing technologically advanced features which are safe yet stylish. With these test results, the Nexon is India’s safest compact SUV, after being one of the most awarded models from the Tata Motors’ PV stable. It is a proud moment for all our Nexon customers today. I am delighted and proud of the hard-work put in by the entire team and congratulate each one for this accomplishment. Our journey to offer best quality products continues.”
According to Tata, The Energy-absorbing body structure with HSSC (high-strength steel construction) and critical reinforcements, effectively absorb the impact energy and provide a stable load-path for protecting the passenger compartment from deformation. For driver & passenger safety, the Nexon comes equipped with dual-frontal airbags and seatbelts with pre-tensioner, load-limiter & crash-locking tongue which prevents the uncontrolled forward movement of the occupant and avoids injuries. The driver footwell area is also reinforced with pedal blockers to prevent the feet injuries in the event of an unfortunate crash.
Other safety features include ABS with EBD as standard offering, ISOFIX anchorage for child-seat, Child-safety door locks, Voice-based alerts and Front fog lamps with cornering assistance which ensure an all-round safety while driving on-road.
This test just goes on to prove that how seriously Tata has been taking the Indian market and has gone out all guns blazing when it comes to safety. The competition has clearly got a thing or two to be worried about now!
